    Everyone’s heard of arts and music festivals. But the Brown Bear Festival in Philly is a bit different.

    On Saturday, July 17, come out to Clark Park in South West Philly from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and indulge in some food, fine arts, crafts and live music. Admission is free, however you're encouraged to make a donation -- and for a good cause.
     
    The second-annual event is dedicated to making the public aware of human and environmental causes through art and live music. This year, event proceeds will go to Haiti relief.

    “It’s dedicated to the human resolution of peace and bringing the awareness to the public,” said Inga Kimberly Brown, a local painter and creator of the event. “I want to raise at least $5,000 -- as much as I can. It’s a way for artists and musicians to get together for a huge cause and we’re going to have some great acts,” said Brown.

    Local talent DJ K.L. Diablo is MCing. The band lineup features a ton of local acts, ranging from rock to jazz/blues. An after party follows at the Tiberino Museum on Hamilton Street.

    Come out and give relief to the Haitians and get some relief from the everyday stress of your life.
